- Courses starting September. Call 01539 814700 for details.
- 09:30 - 16:00
Professional engineers are at the forefront of developing new ideas in an ever changing world and are highly valued within industry. They form the backbone of research and development in their respective fields.
Level 4 HNCs provide a nationally recognised qualification offering career progression and professional development for those already in employment as well as opportunities for students to progress into Higher Education.
The course will take two years of part-time study to complete. It will provide the knowledge and practical skills relevant to the Mechanical Engineering Industry. This course is awarded by Pearson.
The course will take place at the Main Site at Kendal College.
Generally, you will only get student finance if you’re doing your first higher education qualification. This is true even if your previous course was self-funded.
Whether you qualify for student finance depends on certain criteria, please see www.gov.uk/student-finance and our college ‘Student Money’ pages: www.kendal.ac.uk/studentmoney.
